Months ago my Mom sent me a great selection of baseball cards collected by my Dad as a kiddo (she sent me cards that were in poor condition and of little value to collectors). Her idea: turn them into books.
After a bit of experimentation, I discovered that some of the cards could be split in two. I adhered the pieces to book board to form the front and back covers. An old white purse gave up its life to provide leather for the straps. Red thread sewn to the split straps came the closest to resembling a baseball stitch. I love the wonderful colors and imperfections of the cards; and they bring back good memories of my Dad.
